These beauties by Magdalena of Secret Garden Chic were made from chipboard circles. She used a variety of fun tools, plus leftovers from other projects too. She added dimensional swirls from a 3D Decor Stencil with paste. Added color using Chalk Pastes, Crackle Paste by Finnabair and Artisan Powders from the Memory Hardware collection. Plus-she dyed the ribbon with the pastes too for a perfect match-great idea. Then she added little bits of script and gold transfers…They look like they have been aged to perfection!

Stacey Young created this set of ornaments using a variety of mould appliques from the [re]design Decor Moulds™ along with Impasto Paints and Art Ingredients from the Finnabair collection. Love how she added the micro beads and crystals around the designs. The glaze she added brings out all the details beautifully…

Magdalena created little ornament tiles using the Casa Blanca Stick and Style Stencil roll. She create a background with crackle paste and used a variety of Chalk Paste® colors for the stencil designs. Then she aged them with a glaze to bring out the crackle texture…so simple yet elegant!

Marta created these pretty little rustic beauties using a variety of mediums by Finnabair and the [re]design Decor Moulds™. She started with plain paper mache ornaments, added the appliques and went to town using the Rust Pastes and Gesso. To protect the paper base-it’s a great idea to start with white or clear gesso on the surfaces as a primer. That way, you can blend colors and mediums without worry! Use splatters of white gesso to mimic snow splatters too…so beautiful and creative!
